No point talking about a WW1 battle when the ships that fought in it are not even in the game to begin with.

We have König and Bayern, and if you really want a WW1 ship you could've snapped up the König Albert earlier this year.

That still doesn't explain the missing Imperial Russian warships that fought at Moon Sound. Plus Konig and Bayern are modelled with fake WW2 refits, and I don't give WG money anymore for screwing up WW1 ships. And why on earth is SMS Moltke still not in the game?

The real Konig looked like this.

Not this piece of crap WG pulled out of their ass.

So you aren't allowing people (devs/players/CCs) from a game about warships fighting each other to talk about a naval battle?

It's like "you can't talk about bugs in a farming game that doesn't feature bugs" (while bugs play a big role in agriculture) or "you can't talk about XM-8 in Modern Warfare 1 because the game doesn't have that gun" (but XM-8 is an assault rifle and CoD franchise is all about military stuffs).

The apparent lack of logic is astounding.

Like I said above, you could've gotten a König Albert earlier this year during the summer 'sale' event.

If it's because you missed out on the event, both the Derzki and Izyaslav are Imperial Russian destroyers; In fact Izyaslav is almost Identical to the Russian destroyer sunk during Moon Sound (Grom).

I'm merely suggesting that WG should only discuss battles that are relevant to the game, which is WW2 and postwar. It just doesn't make sense to talk about a WW1 naval battle when the ships involved aren't even in the game to begin with and are unlikely to ever appear, like the pre-dreadnought Slava for instance. It's like talking about the battle of Jutland when the ships that fought in it like Lutzow and Moltke are not in the game.

Like I said, I don't give WG money anymore for screwing up WW1 ships. Plus I took a long break from the game and reinstalled only a few days ago just to get the SCs from the anniversary event.

The Armchair Admiral series is not just about Battles with ships in the Game, it is a discussion on Military History and if it is successfully engaging, maybe the map of the Battle Area or an Operation based on the Battle could be modelled. 

I enjoy the series and look forward to the discussion

The fifth episode of the hit naval history talk show will be live on Twitch next Friday. Drop your questions here!


Read it on the portal

Can I suggest the The Battle of Leyte Gulf, which included the Battle off Samar, The Battle of Surigao Strait and the Battle off Cape Engano as the next month's topic? And maybe include James Hornfisher again?

By that logic, they shouldn't talk about no naval battle, because none of them are relevant to the game, because gameplay in this game involves basically zero RL tactic, even less RL strategy, because they don't even fit. Crossing the T? Get citadeled and die quicker!

Also, "which is WW2 and postwar"? Many low/medium tier ships (T1-6) disagree. A large chunk of ships in the game came from interwar era or WW1 and earlier. Many players who play Operations a lot will use T6/7 ships, which are mostly WW1/interwar ships.

Actually, let's talk MORE about that battle so WG get the hint that many, many, many players want German and British BCs in the game so they would add it.

That battle would be great as an Operation, especially something that could be a lower tier operation. It would be good for the May 2021 session, as the topic coincides with the Month of the Battle.

This was question one for those that watched the stream or Youtube.  And well answered, shame Jingles was not available, but a very informative series

Its a shame these codes are for feeds that run at the time the majority of ASIA players are asleep.   Maybe some consideration could be made for the region players @mademoisail

Howdy fellers.  

Thanks for bringing this up and pinging me. I did some double checking, and  I wanted to let you know that this will be fixed this week. Also, as some of you have already figured out, you can get Jingles a second time.
